Re: RF 15-35 abit... Meh?

Never shot it (nor any RF glass or bodies), but from reviews I find the vignetting of Canon's latest f2.8 ultrawides appalling.  The latest EF version shares the same characteristics.  Sorry, but 4.5 stops of vignetting in the corners at wide angle is just disgusting on lenses of this price.  And even stopped down you still have 2+ stops in the corners at the wide end.  I mean...you're paying for performance at f2.8, otherwise just buy the brilliant 16-35 f4 IS, right?

Yes it's sharp, and yes vignetting is correctable in post (with a hit to noise in the corners), but it still seems like an excessive design compromise at this price.  It could be more forgivable if the lens were light and compact, but the 15-35 is a tank.
